Ross Noble and Nina Conti to headline Bristol Comedy Garden 2017Posted on: 15 Mar 2017
The Geordie funny man and the ventriloquist extraordinaire head up the horde of celebrated comics appearing in Queen Square between 14th-18th June as part of this year’s Bristol Comedy Garden.
The Bristol Comedy Garden, a laugh-packed festival which has taken over Queen Square for five days each June since 2011, has announced its line-up for this year, with Ross Noble, Nina Conti, Greg Davies and Adam Hill (below) heading up a comedic embarrassment of riches.
Also slated to star across the gag-gala are Joe Lycett, Rich Hall, Sara Pascoe, James Acaster, David O’Doherty, Tim Key, Kerry Godliman, Sean Walsh, Marcus Brigstocke, Stewart Francis and Henleaze’s own Mark Watson.
As you would expect, suitable sustenance will be on hand to accompany the comedy as bars and gourmet food bars are to line the sides of Queen Square.
Cass Randolph, the festival’s producer, said: ‘We’re ecstatic to be announcing this year’s line-up. Comedy greats like Ross Noble and Greg Davies have been at the top of our wish list since we started the Comedy Garden back in 2011 and to be able to present them alongside these other incredible acts is really an honour.’
‘We can’t wait to return to Queen Square to put these big names in front of our Bristol audiences who we know will make this year the best yet.’
Tickets for Bristol Comedy Garden, costing between £18.50 and £24, are now available at www.bristolcomedygarden.co.uk. The festival is to take place between the 14th-18th June.
